"You have become an integral part of Trevor’s development and growth."


It is so hard for me to put into words how much your year of care has meant to me. You have become an integral part of Trevor’s development and growth. Your love of all the kids and the warmth and security in your program is unsurpassed. Thank you. M.

P.S. If we have another one he/she will be with you too -I hope!

"You’re an important part of what makes our family function so beautifully."

Dear Mimi,

Christmas Eve marks a very happy one year anniversary for us -the first day Sam came to you. He looks forward every morning to learning and playing with his friends and fun toys and the activities that you provide.

We’re very appreciative of the professional way you run your business and the love you show for Sam. You’re an important part of what makes our family function so beautifully. We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

Love, M., G. and Sam

P.S. We love the group photo you sent us! Sam has decided to name the bear you gave him the very original name "Teddy"!


Dear Mimi,

We can’t begin to tell you how happy we’ve all been with Sam’s spending the last 2 ½ years at your daycare -how quickly it’s passed!

The care and nurturing he’s received from you has helped shape him into the confident and sociable boy who will soon enter kindergarten.

Every morning Sam has looked forward to going to Mimi’s House and he frequently tells us how much he loves you. We’ve been delighted to have him come home from daycare singing childhood songs we had both long forgotten.

We’re grateful for the patience you’ve shown while Sam’s gone through "the terrible twos", his hyperactivity, and his testing the limits.

We wish you continued success with your daycare…

We can’t think of a better experience for a growing child!

With love,

M & G

"Mimi is extremely considerate toward the parents"

Mimi Toth took care of our son for a little over two years. During that time, we never had a moment’s worry about his care during the day. We echo the opiions of all the other parents we know of children of Mimi’s House in saying that Mimi offers a wonderful environment for small children. She is mature, caring and seemingly tireless! Our son just loves Mimi and always looked forward to going to her House, doing the activities, and playing with the other children.

Mimi is a person who clearly loves her work. She is very creative with designing special art projects for the kids to work on. She gives the kids time to explore things on their own. She is very patient and positive with the children.

She has always called us promptly if our son was not feeling well enough to be there. Mimi is extremely well-organized and considerate toward the parents. (For example, she notified us probably five months in advance when she was going to take one week of vacation!)

Finding a satisfactory situation for the care of young children is a problem for many parents. For us, and for many others, Mimi’s House has not been just satisfactory, it has been exceptional!

"You really have made a big difference in our lives"

Dear Mimi,

I want to thank you for all you’ve done for Jake in the past 3 years. You really have made a big difference in our lives -doing such a great job and really caring for the kids. It’s really hard to move on when you’ve been part of our life for so long. I only hope the future is as full of blessings as our time with you has been. I know that you’ll be in our hearts forever and I hope to see you often in the future. Thanks again; you are really special! …

"The care you give Isabella cannot be matched anywhere"




Words cannot express our sadness upon leaving Mimi’s House nor the gratitude we have for you for the exceptional care you have provided my daughter, Isabella.

The care you give Isabella cannot be matched anywhere. You taught her that there are rules one must follow, yet gave her freedom to explore and to be creative. You taught her her colors, shapes, counting, and caring. You teach the kids that is fun to learn and we hope they will carry it with them forever. I’ll never forget Isabella coming home and singing songs she learned at Mimi’s!

You offer them a safe, secure, fun, creative environment where kids can be kids. You treat the children as if they were your own, and that is unique.

You constantly go beyond the call of duty and take them places such as the library, McDonalds, the beach, etc.

These are memories I am sure Isabella will always treasure.

We are sad to leave, Mimi, and we thank you for giving your love to Isabella. WE hope to visit you and wish you all the best. Thank you also for all the extended aftercare you provided Izzy. You again did much more than what was expected of you!

Thank you also for the "extended care givers" -your family. Their support and friendliness will always be remembered. What a special family you have!

Again, thanks, and we hope to visit in January!

God bless you!


B. and Isabella
